This spiced apple crunch is a fragrant, mouthwatering dessert, perfect for a brisk fall day.


  • 6 cups sliced tart apples, peeled or not
  • 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour

a classic recipe, Member jmvermont

I had lost my recipe for this old-time favorite and was so happy to find it on about.com. The only difference was the butter. I think if you leave the butter off it stays crispier, and my old recipe had sugar that was stirred in with the apples before the crisp was sprinkled on top. But that's really a matter of taste, and how sweet your apples are. This really is an apple crunch recipe - it's different from the apple crisps, which aren't really crispy, but are much moister and often include things like oats. In this kind of a recipe, the top is supposed to be crunchy on top of the soft apples. I like both kinds of desserts (I love fruit desserts!) but I think that some of the comments in the other reviews were from people who thought this was an apple crisp recipe. Before I started searching online for my lost recipe, I didn't realize how many, many apple crisp recipes there are out there and how very few apple crunch recipes there are!
